only a fraction of a penny (Mark 12)
That's what the widow offered. That's how much I think my life is worth sometimes; it's not even worth a penny. Maybe that's how much your life is worth, you think. But whatever opinion we have of ourselves, God sees our sacrifice in a different LIGHT. Entirely.
Don't degrade yourself, and make excuses, whimpy ones at that, that God doesn't care whether or not you offer yourself because your life amounts to nothing. On the contrary, the fraction of a penny that you think you're worth is more in value then you could ever dream when it is offered with utter sincerity.
In God's economy, the exchange rate is excellent. :)
